Dublin: 9 °C Thursday 29 September, 2022

Here's what Dubliners need to understand about Supermacs

There’s nothing better than going to Shmacs for a shnackbox, believe us.

IF YOU’VE MOVED to Dublin from the shticks, you’ll know that Supermacs just isn’t a big deal up here.

Try as you may to cajole your city slicker mates into accompanying you to that fine establishment for some taco fries, they just don’t get it.

Why would they go to Supermacs? They have McDonald’s, Burger King, KFC and even Abrakebabra, if they’re especially stuck.

But Supermacs is the best of them all – let us explain why.

We don’t have a choice

And when you don’t have a choice, you EMBRACE.

The food is actually very nice

Much better than the standard fast food chain fare. Would we lie to you?

It’s the place to go after a night out down the country

Outside of Dublin, you’d be mad to go anywhere but Supermacs on a night out. Everyone is there! You can watch all the fights from the comfort of your booth! Some of them have to employ bouncers!

You can get anything on your chips

ANYTHING. Taco beef, cheese, garlic, curry, coleslaw…why are you making that face?

The mascot is a giant pink rabbit

Maccy D’s have a scary clown, KFC have that old guy, Burger King have a creepy plastic king. Pink bunny wins.

Papa Johns is just as good as Dominos

What? It is.

It makes your train journey home so much better

Nothing like going into Heuston and picking up one of those red and white bags of greasy goodness before getting on the train.

It belongs to us

No other country (except Australia, potentially) has Supermacs. It truly reflects the highly sophisticated Irish palate, and is therefore unique.

Now get in there and have yourself a curry cheese chip, STAT. No need to thank us.
